What\u2019s happening: At Harvard and MIT, Nieman Fellows from all over the world are learning about algorithms from each other and those vast university resources. Uli K\u00f6ppen is a Nieman Fellow in Cambridge, Massachusetts who is studying algorithmic accountability, machine bias and automation in journalism. Uli K\u00f6ppen is using the fellowship to gain a better understanding of how algorithms form the journalism of the future (stories and products) and to learn more about the U.S. way of dealing with tech innovation. She is part of a working group dedicated to Artificial Intelligence together with hackers, computer scientists, open data activists and lawyers discussing recent developments in AI and the implications for society. Digging Deeper: \tBoston and Cambridge are great places for this kind of learning journey because you meet people with the same interests on and off campus. K\u00f6ppen calls it a \u201cmelting pot for people curious about digital innovation, future business models and algorithmic responsibility.\u201d \tPeople with completely different backgrounds and disciplines tackle the same problems at Harvard and MIT. \tThe MIT Media Lab and Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society have been core to these interdisciplinary encounters. \tAt Harvard Kennedy School, K\u00f6ppen is looking into statistics and machine learning from a practical point of view. \tAt MIT Business School she is learning about product readiness and business models of innovative products. What\u2019s Next: The Niemen program is keeping Uli K\u00f6ppen busy with workshops about recent developments and leadership in journalism, business models and underreported issues. She plans to share what strikes her most on this journey at her Medium channel.
